Cinderella Phenomenon - Otome/Visual Novel

I got to play this game around last month while I was grinding to tier on UtaPri Shining Live. Lately, grinding on SL can range from taxing to tedious, or both. To lessen the feel of that burden, I play it in front of my PC and either play a visual novel or read manga online at the same time.

Supposedly, I was to review Amnesia -Memories- because that was the otome game that I played after Nicole, to which was the last game that I did a review in this blog. When I finally found the motivation to write a blog post, I found myself wanting to make a write up on Cinderella Phenomenon. I do have to warn you that I still feel a bit lazy, so I’m just putting it out there that the game synopsis and character descriptions are copy-pasted from this site. The rest will be my own opinions, so yeah.

I am also going to letting you know that I will talk about some stuff that may or may not be spoilers for the reader, so (mild) Spoilers Ahead!

7 Horror Anime to Binge for Halloween

Obligatory spooky (sexy) music: Kuchizuke (くちづけ) /Kiss by buck-tick. I hope it doesn't get taken down ;_;

This is an extremely late post for the season, I know, but I have always wanted to do this since… two years ago? Might as well get on with it before October ends. So why seven titles? Well, the number obviously didn’t reach 10 rofl. Honestly, I originally planned it to be five, then found two more titles on my list. I wanted it to reach 10 to get this even number, but sadly it didn’t.

Before I start, I’d like to explain that I am a fan of the horror genre, however, I am kind of squeamish. I do not like to watch stuff that overly show blood, guts, and gore, but appreciate more of the psychological/mindf*ck, creepy, crawls-in-your-skin type. To give concrete examples, stuff I like: Shutter (Thai movie), Junji Ito materials, The Wailing (S. Korean movie), A Quiet Place, Get Out, It… you get the idea; stuff I don’t like: Saw, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Hostel, etc. Eww, please get those away from me.

I’d also like to point out that I don’t appreciate a lot of Western horror flicks as they rely immensely on jump scares. Not saying that all of them do, just a lot of them. I, however, do not like to play horror games because I go into panic attacks when I’m in control of the character rofl. I prefer to watch no-commentary gameplays on YouTube.

Now on to my list in no particular order:

A Return from Nowhere

Cute Jizo statues I found in Kiyomizu-Dera last April <3

It’s been such a long time since I last posted on my blog – not just a random blog post, but a lengthy, wordy, one. I have to admit, though, that my interests lately wane fast. I find myself being interested in too many things that often times I don’t dwell on stuff as much as I would have a couple of years ago in order to go to the next thing that I want done. In some way, I am still a hoarder of things: in this case, this involves interests, anime, games, books, and sleep. In other words, I have too many things to do and what have I done? ;_;

In Memoriam

Linkin Park is one of the reasons why I like listening to music. I'm not really a hardcore fan, but I'm much of a fan enough to like them. I went through high school listening to their songs in Hybrid Theory and Meteora phase, and I've always been able to distinguish Chester Bennington's voice when I get to hear a new song of theirs.

So sad to hear about the tragic news. Rest in peace, Chester.
